Naughty or Nice

Now I made this card a couple of weeks ago I think.I had used a sketch but for the life of me I can't remember which sketch challenge it came from. It was a fun one...being that some girlfriends and I got together to play.We decided to pick a sketch and see who was the first to complete.I lost lol.I`m too yappy I think.But it was a hoot to do it.It did make me accomplish one thing though..a card.Had I not accepted the challenge this baby may never have had happened lol. 

So yes this is a Saturated Canary image called Candy Cane I believe. She is my fav Xmas image of Saturated Canary. The papers are from Echo Park ..Very Merry. I used my mover/shaper die mini cardinal/poinsettia for the poinsettias. The little bird,stars and banner wood pieces are from Studio Calico. They were a gift from a girlfriend for my bday...I love them and are gonna have to get me some more. Anyhoo hope you like..

Magnolia Bear...

Oh when I saw this fella ,he was a must have. Can't help myself when it comes to cute lol.
Now this color combo is a first for me.I have to say I quite like it.The papers are from Bazzill called Timeless. I added some red cardstock and some red snowflake ribbon.Just for some color to the sepia like tone. The wood snowflakes are from Maya Road and Studio Calico. I stamped my sentiment on to the wooden flag,worked perfectly.

Here is the inside of the card.... I stamped some snowflakes and the word Joy in the background and then stamped the sentiment . The other side of the card was the circle that the image was mounted on sooo waste not..I used it to mount as piece of paper behind the hole and stamped Winter wishes on it.

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends ! ! Today I am showing you this cutie from Saturated Canary called Wendy. Love the little dog.My apologies on the picture quality.

Thanks for stopping by and Have a great day !

Don't get your tinsel in a tangle !

Hi peeps ! Today I am gonna show you Bart. I actually had this image colored LAST year lol but didn't get around to making a card.So I thought he needed to be.He waited long enough. Now this color combo is one I don't think I would normally do lol.I don't mind the pink and green but the red ?? But I think it works.At least I hope you think so lol.
Now when I saw this sentiment from Stampendous  I HAD to have it. Isn't it great lol.

NO RED and GREEN ! !

Well I hope you're gonna like this challenge at High Hopes Stamps. 
colors.We don't wanna see that red and green combo.
I kinda teensy weensy bent the rules here a bit,I used hot pink and lime green.But these are certainly not your traditional colors lol.  I used "frozen fun" today for my project. Adorable isn't he :) That fab papers are from Recollections.A friend had given them to me,I believe they came from Micheals. Could even be a last year thing.? None the less I love that hot pink snowflakes. I kept this card pretty quick and simple. I'm FINALLY realizing I just don't have the time to be so elaborate with my cards during this time of year. Still though,yes I am behind lol. I never learn do I !! Scrapbooker's flaw I believe.

High Hopes Challenge Time

I think you are gonna like this one...easy peasy. Anna has chosen this challenge for us
Fab right? I thought this one would be a challenge for me but I breezed right thru it. I am using "GETTING SPRUCED UP" I think this may be a fave of mine.It was actually super quick and easy to color. This card is actually one I am happy with. I finally got around to using my TH tissue paper musical background.I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp gang Moon Shadow.It gave it that gold tinge to it. My girlfriend sent me some treats awhile ago and one of them was Whimsy's new snowflake die.LOVE LOVE it ! The papers are from Echo Park Very Merry. The snowflake,greeting and penguin buttons are from my stash.
